The truth is, that Christians in general differ very little from either Jews or Heathens.  Christianity occupies their heads; but heathenism their hearts.  They pretend to have faith: but, as for “the faith that overcomes the world,” they know nothing about it.  Their whole life, instead of being occupied in a progressive transformation of the soul after the Divine image, is one continued state of conformity to the world: and, instead of regarding “the friendship of the world” as a decisive proof of their “enmity against God,” they affect it, they seek it, and they glory in it.
